Man, I know my attorney is going to kill me but this thing is so juicy, as a citizen-journalist, I just can't stop writing about it. Besides, Accor North America holds a franchising philosophy based on fairness, honesty, trust, open communications and diversity so here goes:
My case is moving forward to jury trial in Circuit Court - this thing smells so bad, they'll have to issue gas masks to the judge & jury.
I don't want to go into detail, I'll let my very capable lawyer do that in open court but Consumer Complaint Chums consider:
1. Accor's Seaside, OR, Motel 6 Manager Judson is suing my wife for being sweet.
2. He wants to nail me for a motel owie when I wasn't even present at the time.
3. Wants to limit my First Amendment Free Speech on the Internet, which the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) says I have every right to do.
4. What else? Maybe his slick corporate lawyer will tack on the charges that I'm the Boston Strangler or kidnapped Lindberg's baby as well.
Oregonian journalist Marge Boule' - who incidentally published one of my stories - said, "It stinks"; well she's right, it does.
Bring it on; I hope it's settled before Christmas.
Frivolous? Trust me, my friend, i'm very earnest about finding out why judson first apologized to my wife and me and then slammed us on his do not rent list. I'm not being playful about him insinuating to the wa bbb that we're nasty people. I'm not being flippant about being upset over him offering to broadcast my ire coast-wide. I'm deadly serious about seeking his attorney's disbarment for violation of the rico act and have written to the oregon bar about it. I'm not playing about seeking judson's arrest for violating the anti-slapp law and have petitioned the appropriate oregon district attorney for it. I'm serious as a heart attack, pal, a heart attack. I'm not backing down & i'm not going away. Seriously.
